Bundesliga Team of the Week: Matchday 31

Bundesliga Matchday 31 just wrapped up, which players impressed us the most?

With Matchday 31 coming to a close, we experienced some fabulous games throughout the weekend. The title race continues to spice up as both Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund picked up important wins. The latter winning convincingly by a huge 6-0 margin. The midtable continues to provide its fair share of surprises as Xabi Alonso’s Leverkusen were undone by the steely resolve of Koln. Hertha Berlin on the other hand have managed to create more drama in the relegation battle with a win over Stuttgart which kept their hopes for survival alive.

In such an interesting and tumultous week of football, these 11 players managed to shine the most throughout it-

Formation- 4-3-3

GK- Thomas Koubek (Augsburg)
5 huge saves and accurate in his distribution to hand Augsburg a massive win over the 3rd-placed team.

LB- Jonas Hector (Koln)
The one-club man was on point in the game against Leverkusen and did not let any mistakes occur defensively, especially in the air.

CB- Benjamin Pavard (Bayern Munich)
The French international returned to the position he’s most comfortable at and put in an impressive shift despite the late goal which took away his clean sheet.

CB- Mats Hummels (Borussia Dortmund)
The 34-year old didn’t put a foot wrong the entire game and managed to push forward as a ball-playing defender at times during the 6-0 rout.

RB- Mohamed Simakan (RB Leipzig)
The 23 year old made 2 extremely crucial tackles along with a constant presence in the final third. Invaluable to them scraping a win against Freiburg.

CM- Julian Brandt (Borussia Dortmund)
3 assists to his name as Dortmund pushed Wolfsburg aside without any hassle. Fantastic in every aspect.

CM- Jude Bellingham (Borussia Dortmund)
With optimal positional freedom to his name, Bellingham constantly broke into the attacking third and managed to get a solid brace. Top notch performance.

LW- Marius Bülter (Schalke 04)
A massive brace capped off with a 90th minute penalty to hand Schalke a huge win over Mainz. Inspired performance from the 30 year old.

RW- Karim Adeyemi (Borussia Dortmund)
2 goals and an assist. The linkup with Bellingham has rejuvenated his form and brought it to the next level. Even with a missed penalty he came out looking like a star.

ST- Davie Selke (Koln)
2 goals in the first half itself to hand Koln an important win as they try to escape mid-table obscurity. A complete performance you’d expect from a striker as adept as the 28 year-old.

Manager- Edin Terzic
Dortmund’s free flowing football continued to wreck havoc as Wolfsburg were brushed aside without much fuss. Terzic will be hoping the good times continue with only 3 games left in the season and all to play for.
